So many filters changed, oils, impellors, belts – we expect to go through the calm Horse Latitudes and won’t see much wind on the way to the Azores. So it will be a NE reach, motoring, then picking up the Westerlies to the north. With a little under 2000nm motoring range we could burn fuel to get there but that would make for a horrible journey.
The time to put to sea is just around the corner. We have vacu-packed and frozen meats, bought a ton of food (simple to cook this time!)
and will soon take on fuel and water. Of course it’s chaos once again.
ETD Friday 23rd May.
